Iran has been in non-compliance with its Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) commitments since 2019 and its nuclear programme is more advanced today than it has ever been before. We urge Iran to halt all activities in violation of the JCPoA without delay and take the opportunity in front of them in the JCPoA Vienna negotiations to restore the nuclear deal. Iran has also continued with its destabilising regional activities. The UK remains firmly committed to the two state solution as the best way to deliver Palestinian self-determination and ensure a safe and secure Israel.
